Alleged act of police brutality leaves woman partially blind

SHREVEPORT, La. - KTVE - A woman who allegedly suffered a brutal attack by police is now partially blind.

Tanisha White, of Winnfield, is recovering at a Shreveport hospital.  White suffered several broken bones and was badly bruised.   

White explained that she was at a friends house Monday night when she called Winnfield police for a ride home, something she’s done many times before. She believes a misunderstanding led to her brutal attack. 

"The police officer pulled the taser out and started shooting in my right eye," she recollected. 

White has been in the hospital for three days and she’s just learned what some would consider the worst news possible, that she’ll never see out of her eye again.

Louisiana State Police are investigating the allegations.
